congratulations on your coming into enlightenment... regardless of the path you chose to arrive at this point... you are an inspiration, and with THIS realization, be it based on your faith in god or fate or your own self, faith is faith, and when placed alongside yourself and internalized, becoming complete and non dependent on others for your spiritual development and Happiness, you have come across the true inner meaning of personal freedom and acceptance of fate and the good in all things.
In THAT respect, you have now become a self dependent free
man... responsible for your own life and leaving others to be
responsible for theirs. That's not the same thing as complete knowledge
of course... and I expect like me your next realization will bring you
to terms with that inner knowledge to the point that you understand the
pointlessness of ALL absolutism as it relates to "Truth" based on the
realization that, the more you know, the more questions you have, and
consequentially the more you become aware of your own ignorance (or in
my case MY own ignorance).. at which point you will come to the logical
conclusion to give up on absolute or complete knowledge all together in
favor of humility and relative truth to your OWN perception... the only
one that matters on a personal level, basically reducing your self to
the same level of idiocy as I have while leaving room for respect and
tolerance of the "Knowledge" and "Truths" of others... regardless of
source, at which point the only Christ you will need... is the Christ
Then you will realize the responsibility you have to be
your OWN savior just as Christ the original had... and even the
teachings of the church, while useful to a point, are no more "absolute"
than those of any other man. to my knowledge so far, though my journey
is long and I have yet to do more than scratch the surface in my own
life, that is the closest to being "free" and the closest your creator
you will ever come... whom... by the way, contrary to popular church
belief, I suspect is just as curious about his own nature as we are, and
full of just as many questions that, through HIS experiences through
all things, he is likely finding for himself on an "as needed basis"
just as much as we are. After all... it DOES say we are created in HIS
image... does it not??? anyway... it may be found disagreeable... but
that is my humble respect to you, and my humble, idiotic, and fallible
opinion on matters that are just beyond my grasp... and infinitely
beyond my own level of comprehension...
